Texas-Based epoxy flooring Contractors
Epoxy flooring is one of the most important subjects to review in the commercial & industrial sector, and this is especially true for businesses in Texas.
Laboratories, plants, industrial warehouses and other locations exposed to heavy traffic, chemical spills and other contact with external forces must have a durable solution. Most companies “put a bandaid” on floor damage, which results in frequent and high maintenance costs. Omega Industries does things a little different: we’re interested in durable, long-lasting solutions at an affordable cost.
The best solution for floor coatings is dependent on a multitude of factors, as there isn’t a one size fits all solution. If you’re interested in sealing your floor with an epoxy solution, get in touch today.
Proof is in the Preparation
We spend roughly 75% of our time on the preparation of a floor prior to applying a coating system. This includes, solvent and grease cleaning, diamond grinding, etch priming and removing all debris for the work zone. 90% of coating failures are due to poor preparation of industrial floors.
Solid Color & Solid Coatings
Although epoxy floor coating systems were designed as a protective coating, we ensure there is an aesthetic design to selecting colors. We want your clients to drop their jaws when they see your high performance epoxy flooring systems.
Accredited Epoxy Contractor
Many of the large and established epoxy system manufacturers will only supply to contractors with a proven track record. Our suppliers have done the heavy screening on your behalf, to ensure Omega has completed the adequate training on product application.
Epoxy Floor Coatings
I’m sure you already guessed epoxy coatings is the most popular solution for floor protection. The advanced durability of industrial epoxy flooring is the preferred choice for owners of industrial properties, garages, laboratories, warehouses and other types of plants (food & beverage).
How does it work?
Epoxy is a thermosetting resin that is applied in a liquid state. It forms as a strong and rigid plastic type barrier when combined with a polyamine hardener. The hardener is essentially the catalyst that will dry the epoxy resin. Once the hardener and epoxy are mixed, the applicator only has a certain amount of time before the product mixed hardens.
Epoxy cures and becomes harder over time till it reaches optimal level (7 days). The curing process produces cross-linked polymer structures with gives its incredible durability and rigidness.
Urethane Floor Coatings
Polyurethane or Urethane coatings are another common type of floor coatings essential for industrial floor applications. Contrary to common belief, Urethane coatings should not be directly applied to existing concrete floors. However, is most effective as a topcoat sealer over Epoxy coatings. The Urethane film over epoxy coatings creates a softer barrier that will give the floor heat and moisture resistant properties, ideal for the food and beverage sector. Urethane coatings is also an excellent barrier against chemical spills, ideal for laboratories and other manufacturing production floors.
How does it work?
A Urethane coating is extremely flexible, abrasion resistant and provides a high gloss finish. Similar to Epoxy coatings, it is a two part system that when combined requires a curing time. The pot life and re-coat period makes it a preferred choice by contractors and property owners.
Epoxy flooring: Frequently asked questions
Here are common questions customers ask us. Have a different question? Scroll down, fill out the form, and get in touch.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EPOXY FLOORING?
When the epoxy is applied to concrete it effectively seals it. This eliminates much of concretes downsides, such as it being porous. Epoxy flooring can work for almost any situation compared to other flooring methods. Epoxy flooring is durable, is cost-effective, is chemical resistant, and easy to clean.
How do I Maintain My epoxy flooring?
The nice things about an epoxy floor is that it is easy to clean and maintain. You can use a soft bristle broom or a commercial dust mop to clean your epoxy floor. For a very dirty surface, you can sweep away any loose debris and then use a wet mop with clear ammonia and hot water.
How long will an epoxy floor last?
Epoxy floors can last up to 10 years if the flooring is maintained sufficiently. However, if it is located in a high traffic area, the lifespan of the epoxy flooring could be much shorter.
Will you be the lowest bid?
No. We’re a leader in providing highly skilled/specialized services because of our focus on safety and workmanship. No cutting corners on safety or being shady about the number of coats applied. There are many contractors that focus on being the lowest bid, which in eventually turns out to be a liability, unskilled labor or unchecked backgrounds. We are not one of them. Our focus is delivering a premium finish that lasts longer than the memory of the paying the price. This why over 85% of our work comes from repeat clients.
Why are Omega Industries Painters
Very simply, we found an opportunity when GC’s, property owners and commercial businesses were looking for technical expertise to avoid costly errors when making technical decisions. Just like when you go to a dentist, you don’t tell them what you want, you expect their expertise and extensive training to serve you. We found many contractors disappearing into the sunset after getting their check or not honouring warranty claims due to poor workmanship. Our business model is based on providing heavily vetted, educated and skilled labor in combination with selecting quality materials. You get exactly what you want from a commercial painting contractor, i.e. clean worksite, skilled workmanship, background checked staff – without the dramas of unsafe practices, paint that cracks within a month & disappearing acts.
Is there any preparation beforehand?
Yes, there is, the concrete must be prepared before we start pouring on the epoxy resins. We also check to make sure that the concrete floor is clean, as any stain will show through the epoxy flooring. Additionally, we repair any cracks in the concrete as well, before we start. After all this is done we get started with the epoxy floor installation.
How long does the epoxy floor installation take?
The size of the space is a big deal in deciding how long the project could take. Additionally, depending on which type of epoxy flooring you chose, it could be longer or shorter. On an average sized room, it could take 2-3 days.
Do I need to wait after the installation has been completed?
Yes, waiting for 2 days before the space is used is advised after we install the flooring.
